Doing it right
With the aim of bringing together the local community to unearth Carlisle’s history, Fred Story, Owner of Story Contracting and Story Homes, helped kick-start this exciting project with a £20,000 donation to discover exactly what lay beneath the ground.
The excavation works were completed with Story Plant machinery and operators.
A team of 140 volunteers led by professional archaeologists undertook further excavations to gain a greater understanding of the extent of preservation of the Bathhouse and any associating structures.
Key finds included inscription stones, ceramic vaulting tubes and tiles often associated with bathhouses.
